This contribution is concerned with the experimental and numerical study of ballistic performance of steel fiber reinforced concrete structures. For this purpose, three different types of panels, made of steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC), slurry-infiltrated concrete (SIFCON), and ceramic composite (CC), have been tested under high velocity impact of a rigid projectile. Explicit Finite Element analyses aiming at capturing the experimental residual velocities for the SFRC and SIFCON panels have also been conducted. It was found that the use of ceramic in a layered structure of SFRC and SIFCON mixtures improves the ballistic performance of SFRC structures.
